Robin, Xavier and Hugo crabbing at Southwold

I’d never come across this phenomenon until a Devon holiday a few years ago. Is it peculiarly British to want to spend time catching tiny crabs and then letting them go? Or do kids do this in other parts of the world? My childhood memory of having fun with crabs was having hermit crab races – where the first one whose crab moved out of a chalked circle was the winner, and where you stopped your opponents’ crabs by shouting if they came close to the circle.

Hi Julie,
Crabs are for eating eh? We had succulant fairly large crabs for the party (came from Labasa)and of course in Labasa they also take hours to eat the little crabs called kuka. Tonight is our farewell in Suva - curry and roti and tomorrow we catch a bus to Cuvu for the last day and a half of our holiday in Fiji.
